Betty Boop sells patent medicine from a wagon-this is a odd one!
8 July 2002 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

There is a marked difference in the cartoons starring Betty Boop before and after the censorship code and the arrival of the Hays Office. The obvious changes aside, like her hemline, the manic, zany quality seems to fade away in later shorts. That quality is what makes cartoons like this one special. In print and available. Recommended.
